Bring the people you care about together in your home around incredible warmth and comfort, as well as ambiance, with a fireplace that can last for decades. A good place to start in finding the right product for you is to identify whether you're looking to add romance to your living room, cut your winter heating bill, or become more self-sufficient. Also consider the placement within the home, the maintenance required, design and style preferences, as well as which fuel will work best.
Fireplace inserts make an existing fireplace more efficient and clean burning. Fireplace inserts are heating units that are installed into existing fireplaces (masonry or factory-built). Rather than losing valuable heat up a chimney, inserts convert an existing fireplace into an efficient, heat-producing zone heater. They burn either wood, gas, or pellets and offer superior efficiency. Gas is the most popular, providing the convenience of a fire at a flip of a switch with no mess or change to indoor air quality.
Fireplace inserts use the existing chimney, through a flue liner or other necessary modification, for venting; most have blowers to circulate the heat. Vent-free fireplace inserts require no chimney or flue modification.
